Found one build regression for arm, fixed in commit

Another small annoyance we could try to fix: if you have a leftover
src/internal/version.h, the version doesn't get updated when you

I've also made a lot of additional cleanup today. The .sub files and
framework for them are all gone and makefile rules are simplified a
bit in the process. I'm soon going to try to get rid of arch/*/src/*
by putting them in appropriate places in the src/ tree instead, now
that .c files are usable in src/*/$(ARCH), but I may do the atomics
overhaul first since I don't want to bother moving around files I'm
